# Sort an integer array

Sort an integer array
You are encouraged to solve this task according to the task description, using any language you may know.
Sort an array (or list) of integers in ascending numerical order. Use a sorting facility provided by the language/library if possible.

Works with: GNAT version GPL 2006

```with Gnat.Heap_Sort_G;

procedure Integer_Sort is
-- Heap sort package requires data to be in index values starting at
-- 1 while index value 0 is used as temporary storage
type Int_Array is array(Natural range <>) of Integer;
Values : Int_Array := (0,1,8,2,7,3,6,4,5);

-- define move and less than subprograms for use by the heap sort package
procedure Move_Int(From : Natural; To : Natural) is
begin
Values(To) := Values(From);
end Move_Int;

function Lt_Int(Left, Right : Natural) return Boolean is
begin
return Values(Left) < Values (Right);
end Lt_Int;

-- Instantiate the generic heap sort package
package Heap_Sort is new Gnat.Heap_Sort_G(Move_Int, Lt_Int);

begin
Heap_Sort.Sort(8);
end Integer_Sort;
```

requires an Ada05 compiler, e.g GNAT GPL 2007

```with Ada.Containers.Generic_Array_Sort;

procedure Integer_Sort is
--
type Int_Array is array(Natural range <>) of Integer;
Values : Int_Array := (0,1,8,2,7,3,6,4,5);

-- Instantiate the generic sort package from the standard Ada library
(Index_Type   => Natural;
Element_Type => Integer;
Array_Type   => Int_Array);

begin
Sort(Values);
end Integer_Sort;
```

## C

Works with: gcc version 4.0.1
```#include <stdlib.h>

int intcmp(const void *a, const void *b)
{
return *(int *)a - *(int *)b;
}

int main()
{
int nums[5] = {2,4,3,1,2};
qsort(nums, 5, sizeof(int), intcmp);
}
```

## C++

Works with: g++ version 4.0.1

### Simple Array

```#include <algorithm>

int main()
{
int nums[] = {2,4,3,1,2};
std::sort(nums, nums+5);
}
```

### std::vector

```#include <algorithm>
#include <vector>

int main()
{
std::vector<int> nums;
nums.push_back(2);
nums.push_back(4);
nums.push_back(3);
nums.push_back(1);
nums.push_back(2);
std::sort(nums.begin(), nums.end());
}
```

### std::list

```#include <list>

int main()
{
std::list<int> nums;
nums.push_back(2);
nums.push_back(4);
nums.push_back(3);
nums.push_back(1);
nums.push_back(2);
nums.sort();
}
```

## Clean

We use list and array comprehensions to convert an array to and from a list in order to use the built-in sort on lists.

```import StdEnv

sortArray :: (a e) -> a e | Array a e & Ord e
sortArray array = {y \\ y <- sort [x \\ x <-: array]}

Start :: {#Int}
Start = sortArray {2, 4, 3, 1, 2}
```

## Common Lisp

In Common Lisp, the sort function takes a predicate that is used as the comparator. This parameter can be any two-argument function. To sort a sequence (list or array) of integers, call sort with the < operator as the predicate:

```CL-USER> (sort #(9 -2 1 2 8 0 1 2) #'<)
#(-2 0 1 1 2 2 8 9)
```

## D

```auto nums = [2,4,3,1,2];
auto snums = nums.dup.sort; // Sort
nums.sort;                  // Sort in-place
```

## E

```[2,4,3,1,2].sort()
```

## Erlang

```List = [2, 4, 3, 1, 2].
SortedList = lists:sort(List).
```

## Forth

Works with: Win32Forth version 4.2
```create test-data 2 , 4 , 3 , 1 , 2 ,
test-data 5 cell-sort
```

## Fortran

Works with: Silverfrost FTN95
```CALL ISORT@(b, a, n)
! n = number of elements
! a = array to be sorted
! b = array of indices of a. b(1) 'points' to the minimum value etc.
```

Works with: GHCi version 6.6
```nums = [2,4,3,1,2] :: [Int]
sorted = List.sort nums
```

## IDL

``` result = array[sort(array)]
```

## J

```/:~
```

The verb /:~ sorts anything. For example:

```   ] a=: 10 ?@\$ 100    NB. random vector
63 92 51 92 39 15 43 89 36 69
/:~ a
15 36 39 43 51 63 69 89 92 92
```

Arrays of any rank are treated as lists of component arrays. Thus /:~ sorts not only atoms within a list, but whole lists within a table, tables within a three-axis array, and so on. The level of structure at which sorting occurs may also be specified, so that /:~"1 sorts the atoms within the finest-grained list within the array, regardless of the overall rank of the array.
This code also applies to any data type.

## Java

### Array

```import java.util.Arrays;

public class example {
public static void main(String[] args)
{
int[] nums = {2,4,3,1,2};
Arrays.sort(nums);
}
}
```

### List

Works with: Java version 1.5+
```import java.util.Arrays;
import java.util.Collections;
import java.util.List;

public class example {
public static void main(String[] args)
{
List<Integer> nums = Arrays.asList(2,4,3,1,2);
Collections.sort(nums);
}
}
```

## JavaScript

Works with: Firefox version 2.0

JavaScript sorts lexically by default, so "10000" comes before "2". To sort numerically, a custom comparator is used.

```function numberSorter(a, b) {
return a - b;
}
var numbers = [20, 7, 65, 10, 3, 0, 8, -60];
numbers.sort(numberSorter);
```

## Mathematica

```numbers = Sort[{2,4,3,1,2}]
```

## MAXScript

```arr = #(5, 4, 3, 2, 1)
arr = sort arr
```

## Objective-C

Works with: GCC version 4.0.1 (apple)
```- (void)example
{
NSArray *nums, *sorted;
nums = [NSArray arrayWithObjects:
[NSNumber numberWithInt:2],
[NSNumber numberWithInt:4],
[NSNumber numberWithInt:3],
[NSNumber numberWithInt:1],
[NSNumber numberWithInt:2],
nil];
sorted = [nums sortedArrayUsingSelector:@selector(compare:)];
}
```

## OCaml

### Array

```let nums = [|2; 4; 3; 1; 2|]
Array.sort compare nums
```

### List

```let nums = [2; 4; 3; 1; 2]
let sorted = List.sort compare nums
```

## Perl

Works with: Perl version 5.8.6
```@nums = (2,4,3,1,2);
@sorted = sort {\$a <=> \$b} @nums;
```

## PHP

Works with: PHP version 4.4.4 CLI
```<?php
\$nums = array(2,4,3,1,2);
sort(\$nums);
?>
```

## Pop11

Pop11 library function sorts lists. So we first convert array to list, then sort and finally convert back:

```lvars ar = {2 4 3 1 2};
;;; Convert array to list.
;;; destvector leaves its results and on the pop11 stack + an integer saying how many there were
destvector(ar);
;;; conslist uses the items left on the stack plus the integer, to make a list of those items.
lvars ls = conslist();
;;; Sort it
sort(ls) -> ls;
;;; Convert list to array
destlist(ls);
consvector() -> ar;
```

The above can be abbreviated to more economical, but possibly more opaque, syntax, using pop11 as a functional language:

```lvars ar = {2 4 3 1 2};
consvector(destlist(sort(conslist(destvector(ar))))) -> ar;
;;; print the sorted vector:
ar =>
** {1 2 2 3 4}
```

(The list created by conslist will be garbage-collected.)

Alternatively, using the datalist function, even more economically:

```lvars ar = {2 4 3 1 2};
consvector(destlist(sort(datalist(ar)))) -> ar;

```

or in Forth-like pop11 postfix syntax:

```lvars ar = {2 4 3 1 2};
ar.datalist.sort.destlist.consvector -> ar;
```

## Python

Works with: Python version 2.3
```nums = [2,4,3,1,2]
nums.sort()
```

Note: The array nums is sorted in place.

Interpreter: Python 2.4 (and above)

You could also use the built-in sorted() function

``` nums = sorted([2,4,3,1,2])
```

## R

```nums <- (2,4,3,1,2)
sorted <- sort(nums)
```

## Raven

Sort list in place:

```[ 2 4 3 1 2 ] sort
```

## Ruby

Works with: Ruby version 1.8.4
```nums = [2,4,3,1,2]
sorted = nums.sort
```

## Seed7

```var array integer: nums is [] (2, 4, 3, 1, 2);
```
```nums := sort(nums);
```

## Smalltalk

```#(7 5 2 9 0 -1) asSortedCollection
```

## Tcl

``` set result [lsort -integer \$unsorted_list]
```

## Toka

This can be done by using the bubble sort library:

```needs bsort
arrayname number_elements bsort
```

See the Toka entry on Bubble Sort for a full example.

## UNIX Shell

### Bourne Again SHell

```nums=(2 4 3 1 2)
sorted=(\$(for i in \${nums[*]}; do echo \$i; done | sort -n))
```
